Wrap the wire around a cylindrical object like a pen.wrap the end of the wire around something larger to make the holder head.

For making the stand I used a
M. S.D Board. I asked a carpenter to drill holes for the holder,switch and battery.

Step 6: Removing the Reflector

The beams from torches are usually focused to one point.Let's fix this.Remove the reflector from the PCB and fix the PCB using epoxy.

Step 7: Strengthening the Wire(optional)

If you are using wire of low strength, there is a chance that it can't support the weight of the Torch piece and will bend.Supporting it with epoxy is a good idea. apply epoxy only halfway up.
